leaves. vice president joe biden saying the president is exploring executive orders to combat gun violence to, essentially, confiscate guns. the second amendment be damned. the same president we're told now considering executive actions to enact climate change measures, those opposed be damned. and timely to this whole debt debate going on in washington, the same president who supported saying the constitution allows him to raise the debt ceiling on his own, again, congress be damned. add it up, i'm telling you, barack obama is doubling down. and here's the kicker. with plenty of compliant democrats in congress to help. but those democrats might regret what they're aiding and abetting, because they're the ones who'll be fumbling and fuming. when nancy pelosi pushes the 14th amendment to give the power to bypass congress, she is giving him the power to bypass her too. you don't need a trillion dollar magic coin to realize this is nothing less than a high stakes power grab. now, it's not unusual for presidents of either party to try. it is very unusual for so many in both parts to l

if we had these kinds of things in place. >> chris: joe biden indicated in addition to the legislative action he will suggest to the president that the president can also take executive action but not on the big things like banning guns or universal background checks. what kinds of things do you believe the president can do on an executive action basis, unilateral basis that can make a difference? >> start by ensuring that the federal government, people within the federal government turn over their records also to the background check system. so the defense department needs to do that. >> chris: so more information sharing? >> more information sharing within the government. >> chris: do you have a problem with that kind of executive action? >> i think we are just avoiding the reality we have been moving in the direction that somehow self-defense is not valid and that we can somehow protect ourselves by this background check idea he and in fact background checks wouldn't have stopped most of the last of these ms. murders that have occurred. the gun gets stolen or the person has no backg

hablar con usted es sobre el control de armas. el próximo lunes el vicepresidente joe biden, va a dar sus recomendaciones sobre cómo evitar otra masacre como la de newtown, en donde murieron veinte niños. ¿usted cree que hay que poner guardias armados en todos los lugares públicos? ¿en cines, en escuelas, en centros de gobierno, en centros comerciales, para evitar este tipo de masacres? ¿o por el contrario hay que limitar las armas y que casi nadie en este país tenga acceso a ellas? ¿cuál es la solución? >> yo creo que la solución es limitar las armas. es decir, en este país el año pasado, mataron más o menos como once mil personas con estas armas, es decir, las balas aquí mataron a once mil. en inglaterra, solamente a treinta y cinco. ¿qué es la diferencia? la diferencia creo yo, es que allá se limita quién puede tener un arma. y aquí, en los estados unidos, cualquiera puede tener un arma. si yo quiero ir a comprar diez, veinte armas, yo voy y las compro. ¿verdad? a la tienda, y eso no está bien. tenemos que tener un control aquí que no tenemos, es decir, tenemos q

to back off on it. whereas some of us thought frankly watching joe biden and talking to people around a this task force that he was not going to go there, when this gets reported to the president, very quickly, by the end of thissant more he is gog to take some very big steps. it is a fight he wants to take on clearly. they may not get it. the politics aren't there yes. but he is going to at least engage congress on. >> i have a couple of minutes and a couple things want to get to quickly. first of all, four, mayor booker, taking on some of these big debates and might take them on in the senate. you filed your papers to run for the senate in new jersey to take on a senator lautenberg. is that what you intend to do? will you run? >> again, you have to file the papers even to do research on the issue, even to travel on the issue. so, we are complying with the law before we do any exploration of the senate run. we have got to file an account. that is my intention. it is over a year away. a lot is going to change between now and then. >> senator lautenberg called you self-absorbed and dis

of counterterrorism action, all of those things joe biden talked about a long time ago. i think that's all we'll have there in the future. >> senator corker, are you comfortable with that? >> well, i think the decision about the number of troops we have on the ground after 2014 is something that ought to be weighed as we move along. i realize we're going to be moving down to about 30,000 troops. i'm relatively comfortable with that, but i think as far as what we -- the contingent we have after 2014, i would wait and i don't know of any reason why we would make that decision today. it seems that we'd want to see what the state of afghanistan is. we'd want to see what's happening in the electoral process. all of those things are obviously big factors. my sense is there's no reason to decide whether 6,000, 9,000, 15,000 troops until we get to that point. >> but, senator reed, how about by the spring. to simply training and support by the spring? last month's pentagon report said 1 of 23 afghan battalions is capable of operating on its own. >> i was down in the patyka province, and essentially 87% of the

that mean? what does that mean? why is joe biden hiding qualified women in his house? >> what i better than joe biden. >> i agree. i'm grad we're talking about it. that photo had about a dozen people in it. the reality is there's 22 members of the cabinet and cabinet-level positions. eight of them are women. another five are minority men. so it's not like that photo is exactly representative of the cabinet. that's one thing. and the other thing is the groups that are engaged many the clutching of the pearls on this are number one, republicans, who, come on, seriously, they couldn't even find any women to talk about birth control and they're obsessing over women's reproductive health and the beltway media which is not exactly teeming with women either. so i think it's a little bit of trolling. but, of course, the first term of a president is like freshman year. you have to surround the people that are good for you and the second term is like you're an upper classmen and you pick your roommates and it looks like from the past three highs picking bros, only guys but he's picking three very hig
